I just wanted to extend a HUGE thank you to Jim at Falcon. The boat is finished and rigged FLAWLESSLY! I'll post some pics soon...

We're off to Block Island for a couple of days, so I'll post pics as soon as we get back.

BTW, made one pass "near" WOT and it ran 66mph with 26" Bravo I @4600 RPM. After a little more break-in and finding the proper trim angle, we hope to see more. As far as the attitude of the boat with the Bravo drives, it is like night and day...the boat seems to really loosen up now. The X-dimension is pretty high(prop shafts are only a few inchees below the bottom of the boat) and it seems to carry the bow very nicely with NO porpoise at all.

Great news Sean ... looks like a wise choice Can't wait to see some pics. I loved the refresh on the interior ... dash, gauges and dashboard ... couple years ago. I was looking for a boat right at that time (w/ real nice, fresh 540's right???) and couldn't quite coin up for it, but man I wish I could have. Glad you decided to keep her.

Enjoy
Chris

Great news Sean. Now get her broken in and bring it up to our run on Lake George on Columbus Day weekend. There should be 6-7 other Cigs in attendance
